Crean And Beazley Spar Over Leadership Challenge Claims

The Leader of the Opposition, Simon Crean, and his predecessor, Kim Beazley, have continued sparring over the ALP leadership.

In an interview on Sky News today, Crean claimed that Beazley had given him an undertaking not to challenge for the leadership.

Beazley responded to Crean’s remarks and praised the Shadow Treasurer for his Budget Response.

Beazley held the ALP leadership from 1996 until 2001, when he stood following the party’s election defeat.
